Garish decor, great food

A typical Cajun restaurant. Best described by a mature gent who said this when I asked if he was the owner as we walked in. "No, but I have helped pay the mortgage for the owner for over 20 years," was his response. We understood why. From oysters to crawdads to crab to étouffée and more. GREAT

Restaurant is very well decorated and has a large selection of seafood. They cooked my fried oysters just as I requested. Waitress very friendly.

Double-check any to-go orders. They are 1/2 of what you paid. Order was half of what we paid. very dissappointing for the price.

Best crawfish, but it is a bit pricey. Definitely try the Royal Reds shrimp. Boiled shrimp are really good.
